On my fabric postcard group I joined a swap for January that was themed : Teal, pink and gold!! Very close to my favorite colours so I signed up to play!!! I decided to use small scraps of fabric and create some flaps on the bottom portion of my teal postcard. They were cut to 1/2" wide and I cut them to 1.5" in length and lined a group of them across the bottom of my teal fabric then stitched them into place with my sewing machine. I placed another row above them overlapping the first row. I also offset them just a bit and stitched that set into place. I really like this glittery butterfly fabric and the colours were all keeping with the theme. I found a pink ribbon that coordinated, positioned it above my stitch line and stitched it into place tucking the ends underneath before stitching. I added a layer of batting to the back and added wavy lines on the top portion and then again a few lines of stitching below the flaps to keep the batting in place. I used fusible webbing to add an interfacing layer as well as a white backer. I decided to create a button to introduce the gold. I used plastic packaging, some gold foil and several layers of fabric to create my 3D embellishment. You can check out the tutorial I created that outlines the process of making this collage button here. I used pink thread to sew my button embellishment to the front of my postcard. Really happy with how this all worked out. I was really hoping to add some beading but it seems finished just the way it is, so I anticipate that I will not be adding any. The teal layer was large enough to fold over twice to the back and then I simple hand stitched the border in place to finish off the back of the postcard. It will be off to my partner very soon.
